June 12                              BREAKING THE RULES                                             Janet Smith

Janet writes  “‘Breaking the rules’ was born out of the number of times I hear “Am I allowed….?” when I’m teaching.  We will look at tools and materials and techniques, and realise that sometimes the breaking of what we thought was a “rule” can lead to something more exciting.”

And while we trying to sort out if it was  possible for us to run this workshop she wrote  “Oh the irony of making sure I’m not breaking the rules to run my breaking the rules workshop!”
